In November, I was lucky enough to get to go to the first Wordsmith writing retreat/workshop with Beth Revis and Cristin Terrill.  I learned a lot and laughed a lot, and came away with so many new ideas for how to fix the issues in my current WIP that were holding me back. (Side note: my novel imploded thanks to the character motivation exercises we did one afternoon, and because of that I was forced to take a hard look at why the story wasn’t working. I used the techniques they’d taught us–and the advice in Beth’s book Paper Hearts–to rework the bulk of the plot and made it into a MUCH stronger book!)

When we arrived, Beth gave us all copies of her new writing advice book, Paper Hearts Vol. One. I had already pre-ordered it from Malaprop’s, which left me with an extra copy! So, I’m giving away the signed pre-ordered copy and the additional writing advice booklet from some amazing YA authors. Believe me writers, you want this book. Not only is it so damn helpful, but it’s a seriously fun read.
